Ramsbottom United have further bolstered their attacking options with the capture of Darrhyl Mason from Mossley.  The 22-year-old powerhouse from Manchester has Evo-Stik experience with Witton Albion and goes straight into Mark Fell’s squad for the home game with Brighouse.

The Cheadle-based forward can be utilised as a forward or winger and had impressed during his short stay at Mossley having started the season with NWCFL side Atherton Collieries.

Manager Mark Fell knows the qualities that Mason will bring to the Rams.  “He’s been on our shortlist for a long time, we’ve watched him several times this season and always been impressed so when the opportunity arose to get the deal done we jumped at it.  He’s a real athlete, quick, strong and powerful – he’ll give us something different to our current forward line and can play in several different roles.

The signing of Mason comes just a few days after the Rams captured the double signing of Accrington Stanley duo Nathan Webb and Reagan Ogle on loan from the League Two club.

19-year-old Webb gained a professional contract at the Crown Ground last season after an impressive goalscoring haul in the youth team including dumping West Ham United out of the FA Youth Cup.  He made his first team debut this season against Crewe in the Check-a-trade Trophy.

Australian full back Ogle has also been part of the first team squad on several occasions this season and is an explosive, attack minded ‘modern’ defender who is very highly regarded by this parent club.

Rams boss Mark Fell knows what to expect from his two new recruits, “they are excellent footballers who are hungry to get more senior games under their belt.  Webby is a magician, he’ll give us an outlet and will make things happen when he’s on the ball, he can provide us with some width we have been missing for a while.  Reagan I knew was very much in demand, he’s got a great future in the game, strong, quick and with buckets of quality.

“I am pleased that John Coleman and Paul Lodge have trusted us to help them progress.”

Welcome to the Rammy family to all three players.
